PTSD Combat Featured in New Documentary

Back in June, I traveled to UMass-Amherst to take part in the Media Giraffe Project. A great thrill to represent ePluribus Media at a couple of panels at the conference (see my post and photos).

While there, I was interviewed twice regarding our and my work. Check out one interview (starting ~1/3 of the way into the show) ePM board member Cho and I gave to Rabble Radio. (Thanks Wayne MacPhail!) Next up, brief appearances in Project Documentary's interesting documentary (it's 15 minutes long, so give enough time for download) on citizen journalism, From Pamphlet to Blog.

My understanding is that the documentary team for Cambridge Community TV shot a lot of video and needed to pare it down to 15 minutes. Really. That's the reason why my video footage wound up on the cutting room floor. Really. Really. So, although you can't see me in the documentary, you can still hear me. But you have to catch it quick in the intro as I say "I am a citizen journalist."

Woo Hoo! :o)

What's got me even more thrilled, though, is the brief on-camera appearance of a screenshot of PTSD Combat: Winning the War Within. Mixed in with other blogs, Harvard Professor John R. Stilgoe provides the voice-over:

Society is beginning to realize maybe every morning before breakfast, it might be nice to see how a particular blogger who is particularly smart and thoughtful has picked up on the previous day and night's news. ... Every local politician should not only be conscious of bloggers, but afraid.

Well, I'm not sure about afraid, but I'm happy to have had our little online area highlighted in this way -- even if ever so briefly.

And if you missed those brief 'appearances', don't bat an eye as the credits roll by. (And no, that's not me next to my name -- that's Bill Densmore, the brains behind the The Media Giraffe Project. :o)

Thank you to the whole Project Documentary team for covering the citizen journalism movement. Kudos to your work!
